Questions, Concerns about the Water System?

Since the severe water main break of January 8th, there have been many questions about where to get information relating to water service in Tivoli. This notice is to help you direct any questions and concerns you may have to the proper place.

As of July 2019 the Water and Sewer systems are being maintained and operated by the Dutchess County Water and Wastewater Authority.  They are responsible for everything from billing to repairing water main breaks and flushing hydrants. The Village of Tivoli and the Village Department of Public Works are no longer performing any of this work.

All users of the water system are encouraged to sign up for the DCWWA’s alert service. Link is below:

A workshop meeting of the Village Board of Trustees was held on August 13, 2014 at Village Hall, Tivoli, NY. Mayor Cranna called the
meeting to order at 6:15 pm.
Present: Mayor Cranna, Trustee Bruno, Trustee Schneider
Public: Robert Lachman
Absent: Deputy Mayor Griffith and Trustee Ezrati
On a motion by Trustee Schneider, seconded by Trustee Bruno, the date for the public hearing to hear suggestions for CDBG
application 2015 was set for September 17, 2014 at 7:00 pm at Village Hall, 86 Broadway, Tivoli, New York, all in favor.
On a motion by Trustee Bruno, seconded by Trustee Schneider, the bid for the CHIPs project was awarded to Arold Construction
Company, Inc., Kingston, New York, all in favor.
On a motion by Trustee Schneider and seconded by Trustee Bruno, the Village of Tivoli agrees to pay $2,086.50 (attorney line) to the
Harris Smith American Legion Post for costs incurred during the land transfer between the Village and the American Legion Post, all in
favor. It was noted by Mayor Cranna and Trustees Schneider and Bruno that during the time the elevator at the Village Hall was not
operational, the American Legion hosted the Village government in their hall at no fee for nearly a year. The amount payable to the
Legion seemed fair for the service provided by the American Legion. Mayor Cranna stated that a previous agreement between the
Village and the American Legion in the late 1990’s stated that the Village would take on said costs should this transfer occur. Mayor
Cranna went on to state that the most recent agreement stated that the Legion would cover their costs. Again, considering the Legion’s
assistance to the Village during the time the elevator was not operational, payment of these costs seemed fair and applicable.
Respectfully submitted,
Bryan F. Cranna
Mayor
